Let Your Readers Promote Your Articles With Sharedaddy

in Blog

It’s common for WordPress themes to come integrated with social media voting buttons. However, many themes do not, whilst others simply have simple text links to sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Thankfully there are lots of great plugins which automatically add social media sharing buttons into your site.

Back in March I showed you 11 of the best social media plugins for WordPress. One which would easily fit into that list is Sharedaddy, a new sharing plugin which was released a few days ago.

The plugin lets users share your posts via Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, StumbleUpon, PressThis, Digg and email. You can also add a print link. It’s possible to add other sharing sites and services too via the settings area.

Once the plugin is installed, all you have to add a social media site underneath your posts is drag and drop the service in the plugin settings area. You can remove the site icons if you like, determine the text which appears before the links and set whether the links open in a new window.

Unfortunately there is not an option to add the sharing buttons underneath pages, it can only be added underneath posts and on the home page.

Sharedaddy is a good option for anyone who wants to quickly add buttons for popular social media sites underneath their posts.

Hopefully the plugin will be developed more in the future to include some much needed features such as adding the buttons to pages as well as posts. A larger list of social media sites would also be welcomed.

Good luck,
